In the number one singles division, Panta, the third seed, was defeated by second-seeded Hana Kvapilova of Hillsborough Community College, 0-6, 2-6. In the number two singles division, Aveiga, the fifth seed, lost to top-seeded Tatiana Simova of ASA Miami, 2-6, 0-6.

In number one doubles, Panta and Aveiga, the fifth seed, were beaten by top-seeded Lucie Devier and Maria Genovese of Tyler Junior College, 3-6, 2-6.

The Lady Saints had an outstanding spring campaign, winning their third straight Region VI title and finishing with an 11-4 record.

The tennis season wraps up next week when the men’s team heads to Nationals in Tucson, Arizona.
